With the national and global obesity rates on a rise, it is no surprise that there has been an increase in the number of people who are becoming more health minded in their approach to eating and exercise. With the rise in public concern about nutritional health comes the rise in food trends that claim to provide a healthier lifestyle. While some of these trends prove to be no more than superficial unproven remedies, others have substantial health value. One trend that continues to build momentum is the nut milk and nut butter trend. Whether it is almond milk, cashew milk, cashew butter, pecan milk, etc., the trend of turning nuts into milk and butter is on the rise.
What we are finding is that there are multitudinous benefits of consuming nut butter and nut milk when it is prepared properly. For instance, almond butter is a remarkable source of fiber and protein. There are also benefits associated with the consumption of other types of nut butters and nut milk products.
Where It All Began
Believe it or not, the whole nut butter crave is nothing new. It actually began centuries ago when the Inca Indians in South America found that grinding peanuts in butter made for a tasty snack. It wasn’t until Harvey Kellogg decided to use the treat to provide his patients with a healthy and realistic substitute for meat consumption, and the rest is history, so to speak.
The truth is that all nuts have some nutritional value, and some people either don’t like peanuts, or they are allergic to them. Usher in the age of all things nut butter and nut milk.
How does something with so much upside and promise present any significant problems? The answer is simple, the food industry has proven to be highly untrustworthy when it comes to what they put in our food. The food industry’s definition of natural definitely leaves something to be desired when it comes to protecting our health. This need for a food source that is free from harmful additives has driven an entirely new trend of attempting to make nut butter and nut milk at home, but many are finding that the process is not as straightforward as they originally believed.
For the person who loves the taste and nutritional benefits of nut milk and nut butter, they are faced with a long process of soaking nuts for long periods of time, only to see the finished product consumed in minutes. When it comes to making nut butter, again, the process can be painstaking. Because many health-conscious people have simply lost their confidence in the food industry, finding a way to make a healthy nut-based product at home is the focus. When you are able to make a nut-based product at home, you can be ensured that it is chemical, additive and preservative-free.
The problem has been that creating these nut-based products can be an extremely time-consuming process. This is one of the reasons that Brewista developed a product, in NutraMilk, that can cut the processing time down to as little as seven minutes. This new machine possesses the capacity to create both, nut milk and nut butter in seven to 12 minutes. More importantly, the machine does not require any additives, preservatives or harmful chemicals in order to complete the process. With most processed foods that are purchased in the grocery store, it is the harmful additives that have a negative impact on the health, and in many instances, completely neutralize the health benefits of many foods.
The NutraMilk machine has the capacity to create up to 67 ounces of fresh nut milk or 26 ounces of nut butter at a given time. Not only does this machine provide a time-efficient and cost-effective method for making these products, it is also extremely easy to clean. By simply following a few basic steps, you can have your favorite nut-based product.
The NutraMilk device is not only limited to using almonds and peanuts; it has the ability to convert almost every nut imaginable into butter or milk, including hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews, pecans, and virtually any nut known to man, into delicious nut butter or nut milk.
When compared to other existing methods, NutraMilk is faster, easier to use and more reliable when it comes to consistency. Very few things can be more frustrating than making a product that tastes different each time you make it. Using NutraMilk will ensure that you get the same great taste each and every time you make your favorite nut-based product.
What This Means
Let’s face it. What we eat has an immense impact on our health and our overall quality of life. When we have the capacity to prepare foods that will provide nutritional value without forcing us to consume empty calories, we can immediately experience the benefits associated with the consumption of the more natural product. Many of the additives that are found in processed foods are not meant to be processed by the body, meaning that it will negatively impact the body’s metabolic process, leading to a number of unhealthy conditions, including insulin resistance, diabetes, obesity and even certain types of diseases, including cancer and heart disease.
While NutraMilk is not the cure all for everything wrong with the food industry, it does provide an immediate and satisfactory response to the challenge of creating nut-based products that are becoming an increasingly valuable part of the nutritional intake of health conscious individuals.
So, gone are the days of taking hour upon hour to create a nut butter and nut milk, only to see it devoured in minutes. You can now forget that horrible process of soaking and filtering nuts that you desire to transform. It has been reduced down to a seven to 12-minute process that will produce a consistent taste over and over again. Now, that health snack and beverage will always be a few moments away. And, nothing is fresher than right now, and that is what you get when you make your nut butter and nut milk on the spot — ultimate freshness.
